I am still having difficulties with my RoR driver slaving successfully to my mount without communication errors upon parking; the roof manufacturers are working an an updated driver, as my previous post Obs Dome time out during SGP Shutter.Status check. A fully working driver is the ideal solution I understand, however, I am endeavouring to find a scripted workaround.
As a workaround (temporary I hope) I have written a simple script that launches the roof software and closes the roof. I have tested this as a post-event option (running a single dark as an event) and it worked successfully. Last night I was imaging and had to pause the seqeunce mid-event due to clouds and then I aborted fearing rain. I had only 1 event planned in the sequence: 15 x 600s Lum. Aborting mid-event meant that the post-event script wasn’t called for. If I had completed the event the script woould have ran and the roof closed. In my temporary workaround I stupidly failed to think about the mid-event abort scenario.
In my tiredness in the early hours I couldn’t find a setting to call for a script as a post-sequence option in the same way as ‘warm-up ccd’ or ‘park mount’. Is this possible?
